Two Black men standing next to each other

February 7

The Strategic Leadership Council plans NBHAAD each year.

The 2020 theme is “We’re in This, Together.”

This observance is an opportunity to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among black communities.

The first National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) was marked in 1999 as a grassroots-education effort to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment in communities of color.

The Strategic Leadership Council leads the annual observance.
